Impossible Dream

Everette & I ended up having to take an unexpected drive yesterday and found ourselves without much listening-option. But in the driver's door was a stash of CD's including one by Robert Stearns. It isn't my all-time fav, but it certainly fits the bill at certain times. The Lord knew it would fit for such a time as this.

There were several lyrics that spoke deeply to my questioning and tender heart, but I wanted to share the words of one particular song. Called "Impossible Dream" from "Man of La Mancha". Words written by Joe Darion. Music written by Mitch Leigh.

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march
Into hell for a heavenly cause
And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star.


No matter what lies ahead, no matter where He leads, I want to hear Him say, "Well done, My faithful servant. Enter into My rest". It will all be worth whatever it took.

Question for You: What is your Impossible Dream?
